The biggest US phone firms sided with the US government in delaying the rollout of 5G services in the following week due to issues related to the aviation ministry.
The two biggest phone companies of the USA – AT&T, and Verizon-agreed on delaying the rollout of C-bandwidth wireless signals due to concerns put forward by the Federal Aviation Administration regarding Aviation safety by two weeks.
The two biggest airplane makers – Boeing and Airbus raised concerns regarding the 5G adversely affecting the ability of aircraft to operate safely and causing huge disruptions and delays and therefore they requested the two-week delay in implementation for smooth functioning of both sides. Over the next 14days, the Aviation administration would look to lessen the flight disruptions associated with 5G deployment.
The introduction of 5G is a groundbreaking achievement as it can support up to a million devices per square kilometer leading to high-speed transmission(50Mbps to 1Gbps) due to the use of high-frequency radio waves. It can be implemented in the low band, mid-band, and high band millimeter wave, 24Ghz-54Ghz. And the USA, South Korea, and China have taken the lead globally in implementing.
With South Korea becoming the first nation to roll out in 2019. But the technology is challenging due to the fact that it interferes with the equipment of planes and helicopters, that track aircraft’s altitude and could threaten and prohibit landings in poor visibility, creating large-scale delays, diversions, and cancellations.
This is concerning not just in terms of safety but also revenue losses. The aviation industry has already suffered immense losses due to corona lockdown which led to a decrease in travel across the world.
What is 5g?
The fifth-generation mobile network is referred to as 5G. After 1G, 2G, 3G, and 4G networks, it is an emerging world wireless standard. 5G allows for the creation of a new type of network that connects nearly everyone and everything, including machines, objects, and gadgets.
5G wireless technology is designed to provide multi-gigabit per second peak data speeds, ultra-low latency, greater dependability, huge network capacity, increased availability, and a more consistent user experience to a larger number of users. Higher performance and efficiency allow for new user experiences and industry connections.
Effect of 5G in economy
Global growth is being fueled by 5G.
• Global economic production of $13.1 trillion dollars
• The creation of $22.8 million new jobs
• Over the next 15 years, worldwide 5G CAPEX and R&D will total $265 billion dollars.
It is discovered that 5G’s full economic impact will likely be realized across the globe by 2035, supporting a wide range of businesses and potentially enabling up to $13.1 trillion in products and services, according to a groundbreaking 5G Economy study.
